Caramel S'more Cups

Here's another picture and recipe I stole from my sister-in-law! (Thanks Kim!) She made these for New Year's Eve and warned us all before we ate one that there was a "surprise" inside. We were all curious and after taking a bite, discovered there was a Rolo in the middle of each one. YUM!!!

The only things my SIL did differently in this recipe are 1) she used pre-made cookie dough and 2) she sprinkled on the chocolate chips instead of drizzling melted chocolate on top. These little candy-inside-a-cookie creation were so good and we loved popping them in our mouth to bring in the new year!

Caramel S'more Cups
Source: Betty Crocker

1 pouch (1 lb 1.5 oz) Betty Crocker® chocolate chip cookie mix
1/2 c. butter or margarine, softened
1 egg
24 Rolos, unwrapped
72 mini marshmallows (about 3/4 cup)
1/3 c. semisweet chocolate chips

Heat oven to 350°F. Spray 24 mini muffin cups with cooking spray.

Make cookie dough as directed on package, using butter and egg. Shape dough into 24 (1 1/2-inch) balls. Place 1 ball into each muffin cup.

Bake 13 to 15 minutes or until edges begin to brown. Remove from oven; firmly press 1 candy into center of each cookie until flush with cookie top. Top each with 3 marshmallows. Bake 2 to 4 minutes longer or until marshmallows are puffed. Cool 10 to 15 minutes. Loosen edges of cookie with small metal spatula and remove to cooling racks. Cool completely.

Place chocolate chips in small resealable freezer plastic bag. Microwave on high about 1 minute or until softened. Gently squeeze bag until chocolate is smooth; cut off tiny corner of bag. Squeeze bag to drizzle chocolate over marshmallows. Let stand until hardened, about 10 minutes.
